The police investigation at the Sagmoen farm in Silver Creek appeared to be scaled back Wednesday morning, Nov. 8, with the white tents and black privacy fencing removed, as well as fewer police vehicles present.

RCMP remove tents, machines from farm Police say investigation at Silver Creek farm ‘active and ongoing.’

Martha Wickett salmon arm observer

White tents, black fencing and other investigative tools have been removed from the Sagmoen farm, but police assure the search of the site is ongoing. Residents noticed on Monday that some of the command units had left the site and, on Tuesday, more equipment had been moved. In a news release issued just before 1 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 8, Cpl. Dan Moskaluk said the search is “active and ongoing.” He said RCMP, along with the BC Coroners Service, are continuing their investigation into the death

of 18-year-old Traci Genereaux and the discovery of her remains on Oct. 21 on the farm at 2290 Salmon River Road. “Our investigative efforts and resource requirements are being continually assessed and as a result various resources are no longer required and are now being removed from the property,” he said. “This includes the removal of temporary shelters and heavy equipment. RCMP investigators are continuing their investigative efforts at the property.” Snow covered the community of Silver Creek – and the 24-acre property – on Nov. 2, but police said at

Women gather tips about teen’s last days Richard Rolke Black Press

Efforts to trace Traci Genereaux’s last days are escalating. A group of women are distributing posters in Vernon, Kelowna and Salmon Arm to gather information about the 18-year-old Genereaux, whose remains have been found on a Silver Creek farm. “We want to be supportive of our community because this is so close to home,” said Meagan Louis, who is part of a group that focuses on murdered and missing indigenous women but want to assist with Genereaux’s case. “All women’s lives matter.” Genereaux was last

heard from May 29 in Vernon and reported missing June 9. Her remains was discovered on a Silver Creek farm recently. “It’s a grassroots campaign to help the RCMP gather information and to put together a timeline about Genereaux’s disappearance,” said Louis. As part of the campaign, the women distributed posters at Vernon’s Upper Room Mission on Friday. “We want to bridge the gap between the street people and the RCMP,” said Louis, adding that many people on the street don’t have phones to contact the police.

Family anxious for answers

and

Ashley Simpson’s parents want to be able to lay her to rest. Tracy Hughes Salmon Arm Observer

While John and Cindy Simpson continue to be told by RCMP that the search at the Sagmoen Farm is not related to their daughter Ashley’s disappearance, the discovery of the remains of Traci Genereaux has ramped up their sense of loss once again. The couple, who have endured 18 months of waiting and wondering since Ashley went missing April 28, 2016, are facing the increasing likelihood that their daughter is dead. “Of course, I want her in one piece alive, but if it’s gotta be in a box, then so be it. We’ve just gotta get her home,” says John Simpson in an interview from Ontario. His wife Cindy, says she feels certain that Ashley is no longer alive. She says in some ways the news of the search on the farm has left their family with divided hearts. “In some ways you wish yes, or hope yes, that she will be found there, but you also pray no,” she says. “But in my heart I know she’s gone. All I want now is to bring her home, so our family can say a proper goodbye and know where her final resting place is.” Cindy says this is the critical missing piece in the family’s grieving process. “Right now, it is an open chapter until she is found. Once that happens, I think you can start a different stage of the grieving process and then the healing can start. Right now, healing is not even in our vocabulary.” Cindy says the RCMP have been keeping in

communication with her and are standing by the information they have been given since the search began – this search is unrelated to Ashley’s case. Ashley was last seen on Yankee Flats Road, just one road over from Salmon River Road, where the Sagmoen Farm is located. “Of course they also tell us they aren’t ruling anything out at this point,” Cindy says. The couple’s emotions are also divided for the family of 18-year-old Traci Genereaux. On one hand, they feel sorrow for the confirmation of their loss, on the another this is information they are also desperately searching for. “In what seems like a strange way, I’m happy for Traci’s parents, that they will come to some peace of mind,” says Cindy. “I can’t say it’s

closure because I don’t believe there will ever really be closure for any family in a situation like this one, but now they have a chance to lay her to rest. That’s a big thing for me, not knowing where Ashley is.” Cindy says the scale of the search at the Sagmoen farm is bringing her some strange comfort. “Ashley’s case is an open case and I know they (RCMP) are working on it. They have told us that all along. But to see how thoroughly they are doing their jobs in Silver Creek, that’s comforting to see that those are the resources they will put out there when they get the information they need to go on. That’s reassuring whether this case involves Ashley or not.” John has spent much of the last 18 months keeping his daughter’s case in the public eye,

Traci Genereaux made a positive impression on her friends and teachers.

Good-hearted girl fondly remembered Richard Rolke Black Press

Traci Genereaux is being remembered for her love and compassion. Human remains found on a farm in Silver Creek are those of 18-year-old Genereaux, who was last heard from May 29 in Vernon and reported missing June 9. “In teaching her class, a poetry unit, I discovered that this young lady displayed the heart of a poet and she began to pour out words and feelings as if floodgates had opened,” said Bob Oldfield, who was vice-principal at Ellison Elementary in 2010/11. “She gifted me a piece of her original poetry, a piece written about me, when we were both leaving the school at the end of the year, and I’ve always treasured it.” Now retired, Oldfield has taught numerous students over his career, but Genereaux continues to make an impression. “I was astonished in the sensitivity of her writing. There was a hidden depth of sensitivity,” he said. Sister Kayla Genereaux is only a year apart from Traci. “She was awesome. She was good hearted,” said Kayla. “We were the best of friends. We did everything together.” Traci had addiction

challenges, but even then, Kayla insists her sister was respectful and refused to visit her infant niece when she was on drugs. Kayla is urging everyone to remember her sister for the outgoing individual that she was. “She loved to make people laugh and she was kind to people,” said Kayla.

She was awesome. She was good hearted... She loved to make people laugh and she was kind to people.

Kayla Genereaux SiSter

Human remains were found on a 24-acre property near Silver Creek three weeks ago. No one has been charged in connection to Genereaux’s death and the RCMP consider the case suspicious. The RCMP are seeking the public’s assistance to advance the investigation into Genereaux’s disappearance and death. Anyone who has information about her activities leading up to and after May 29 can call 1-877-987-8477.

Dementia linked to hearing loss Major study finds untreated hearing loss linked to dementia Although the reason for the link is as yet unclear, a recent Johns Hopkins and National Institute on Aging study shows that seniors with hearing loss are significantly more likely to develop dementia over time than those with normal hearing. Researchers say these findings “could lead to new ways to combat dementia, a condition that affects millions of people worldwide and carries heavy societal burdens.” Further, they suggest a common pathology may underlie the two conditions, or that the strain of “decoding sound” over the years puts undue strain on the brain leaving them more vulnerable to dementia. Other speculation includes the social isolation that often results from hearing loss as a factor that could exacerbate dementia and other cognitive disorders. “Whatever the cause,” the school reports, “their finding may offer a starting point for interventions — even as simple as hearing aids — that could delay or prevent dementia by improving patients’ hearing.”

Man dies in TCH crash A 62-year-old Salmon Arm man is dead after a collision between a gravel truck and a pick-up truck on the Trans-Canada Highway Saturday. RCMP released information Monday that the 62-year-old male driver of the Toyota Tacoma from Salmon Arm succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene of the collision which took place close to noon. The male driver of the semi truck from Kamloops was not injured. The collision occurred

on a straight stretch of road. The loaded northbound commercial gravel truck/trailer was northbound while the Toyota Tacoma pick up truck had been traveling southbound. The collision took place on the Trans-Canada Highway between Canoe and Salmon Arm near the Cal-Van Motel. The pick-up truck sustained extensive damage. Its canopy was left several metres west of where the vehicle came to rest. Emergency personnel including Salmon Arm RCMP, Trans Canada East Traffic Services, BC Ambulance and

fire emergency services personnel responded. Crews from the Salmon Arm Rescue Unit used the jaws of life to extract the man from the pickup. Members of the Trans Canada East Traffic Services unit continue to investigate the cause of this collision and are assisting the B.C. Coroners Service. No charges have been laid. Police made no comment on the condition of the road at the time of the crash. The highway was closed for approximately four and a half hours, reopening to traffic at approximately 4:35 p.m.

Remembrance Day is about the thousands who fought and died to protect the country they loved. They sacrificed their lives to ensure our freedoms. By telling their stories we honor them. Remember the ending of “In Flanders Fields”? To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If you break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders Fields. - Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae (Nov. 1872 – Jan. 1918) Remembrance Day is also about us. It’s our turn to give each other the life veterans knew. The rule of law. Justice. A safe & caring society. The Fathers of Confederation chose the Ten Commandments as foundational to the future of our nation. They are really the Tender Commandments. Individuals and nations have found guidance and fulfillment for over 3000 years! What would communities be like where everyone broke every commandment? Would that not be economic and social and emotional disaster? Will not sexual abuse, lying, swearing, stealing destroy our national soul? What do you think? So what are the loving and life-building principles God gave us? 1. You shall have no other gods before me. 2. You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them. 3. You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name. 4. Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work. 5. Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you. (Does this exclude adults who are parents?) 6. You shall not murder. 7. You shall not commit adultery. 8. You shall not steal. 9. You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor. 10. You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife . . . or anything that belongs to your neighbor.” (Exodus 20:3-17) “Father God, we are grateful for the veterans who secured the freedoms we enjoy. Forgive us where we have rejected values that build a tender society. We repent. Help us to be a safe society where all will find hope for our brief life on planet earth. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

there’s ample cause for remembrance

As Remembrance Day approaches we reflect on how much this event has changed through the years, but how much we still need this solemn reminder – maybe now more than ever. Many readers will remember when there were parents and grandparents – veterans all – who donned their uniforms and poppies and, with sad eyes, marched yearly to the cenotaph to lay wreaths and think of friends and family who never made it home. As a newspaper, it was a simple matter to find a First or Second World War veteran to interview for the occasion, to bring home the reality of war and its incalculable losses. So many of these folks are now gone. There is no one left to tell the firsthand tales of serving in the trenches in the First World War. There are few to tell us of the Second, and their numbers diminish every year. But just because these folks who fought for Canada in these two global conflicts are no longer around in large numbers, doesn’t make Remembrance Day any less important. Conflicts abound today. Refugees are numerous and desperate. Too many have their own, fresh, memories of wars that rage in other parts of the world. There’s a president in the White House south of the border who seems determined to play nuclear chicken with a dictator in North Korea. Syria remains a war zone, as does Iraq. No, the lessons of the costs of war have not yet been learned well enough. On Remembrance Day we say, “lest we forget,” yet it seems we have collectively forgotten in too many cases. Those who fought and died in the First and Second World Wars did so with the hope that we in successive generations wouldn’t have to suffer a similar fate. That’s what Remembrance Day is all about: an honouring of our dead, yes, but also a warning of the price to be paid in conflict. It’s worth taking that minute of silence, seeing the solemnity on the faces of those who have been there, and contemplating what we want our future to look like. – Black Press

Fishing for a memorable photograph the great outdoors James Murray It was only month ago that I was on the Fraser River casting a brand new Penn International loaded with 120 pound line to sturgeon lurking in the dark, murky waters flowing past our boat. Two weeks ago I was standing on the banks of the Adams, breathing in the cool crisp autumn air, hoping for a strike from one of the feisty rainbows feeding on salmon eggs. Now the snow is on the ground and fishing is all but over for the year. I suppose I could always try my hand at ice fishing, or spend the long winter months ahead planning for next spring and looking through the photos I managed to accumulate over this past season. There’s the one of me trying to hang onto the tail of a 250-lb white sturgeon – the one that flicked me aside and took off a split second after my friend and fishing partner Cory snapped a picture with his cellphone. And then there’s the one of me getting a fly in the hand as a nice 20-inch rainbow slipped my

grip and made its escape – again while Cory was there capturing it all on his cell. But the one that brings back memories is the GoPro video of a dragonfly biting on the butt of my fly rod. I didn’t know dragonflies could bite that hard. Whether taking still photographs of fish caught or video of the process, there are some basic rules one should follow in order to get more interesting images/video. First and foremost, always be aware of where the light is coming from and how it is falling of the subject. Fill the viewfinder and include only those subjects that are important to the story. When it comes to taking fishing images, try to catch the action. Avoid pictures of lifeless fish. Take your picture while the fish is being landed or, preferably, as it is being released. This way you can capture an image of the fish with all the vivid natural colours characteristic of the species. Remember, a fish’s organs are essentially held in

place by external water pressure. Every moment they are out of the water adds stress to their entire system. A photograph of an angler leaning over the gunnel of a boat, gently cradling a fish on the top of the water, is far better than one of somebody with a cheesy grin holding a lifeless fish by the gills. Just make sure you snap your picture before the fish is actually released, otherwise all you will get is a picture of a splash on the surface and, maybe, the tail of the fish as it heads back underwater. This is especially true when using digital cameras or a cellphone, where there is a time delay between the moment when you press the shutter and the picture is actually taken. Take my word for it. When it comes right down to it, there is seldom any reason to take a fish out of the water. Try to capture candid images. Don’t have the angler stopping what they are doing to look up at the camera. Expressions of concentration, excitement or delight are far more real and interesting. When composing your photograph in the viewfinder, decide whether the image lends itself to either a horizontal or vertical format.

Panoramic landscapes, boats or fish on the surface of the water are all basically horizontal images, but an angler cradling a fish is essentially vertical. Taking pictures from different angles and perspectives will make your photographs a lot more interesting. Photos taken from a distance against the backdrop of morning mist or a palette of autumn colours will give the viewer a sense of what is was like to be there. Not all fishing conditions are perfect, so don’t expect all image-taking conditions to be perfect. Control what you can, work with what you have and know the limitations of your camera. Get too close and your pictures are likely to be soft or out of focus, too far away and important details become small and insignificant, too slow a shutter speed and things will be blurred. Too much staging, they become contrived, too much unimportant detail and they turn out boring. It all takes a bit of planning. The way I’ve come to look at it, being able to record an interesting image of your angling experience is an integral part of the whole catch and release process.

One gym closes, another stays open Business spOtlight Leah Blain On Dec. 7 Harbourfront Tanning & Fitness on Marine Park Drive is closing its doors. “We sold the building and the people who bought it are using the space for their own business,” says manager Dave Brien. Until that date the gym and tanning will continue to operate as usual. They are offering a special weekly rate until December 7 and the tanning dropin rate is now $5. Dave says all the patrons were sad to hear the news “because they loved the place.” He says his time as manager has been very enjoyable. “I’d like to thank (owner) Judy De Dood for the opportunity, and without my staff and the people who came through the door I wouldn’t have been here for six years.” Cardio Connection, owned by Melissa Treleaven, which is in the same building is not going anywhere and they will continue business as usual.

Inspiring a wave of local good

A few weeks ago, 500 Interior Savings employees rolled up their sleeves to lend a hand in their communities and the Credit Union offered up cash for others to get in on this act of local good. This mass volunteering effort marked the fourth annual Interior Savings’ Day of Difference. Across the Interior of BC, Interior Savings staff were cooking, cleaning, painting, donating blood, or doing whatever it took to help

Balmoral Store caters to residents Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

Big changes are happening at Balmoral Store. Right now, the changes are visible only on the inside where new owners Jordie and Karen Wiens spent three weeks renovating the store since the Oct. 1 purchase. But the Wiens are hoping sooner rather than later, the outside will reveal the business as a Chevron Station. Eager to meet the needs of area residents, the couple is using local providers where possible. “We’ve started supplying Sprockets’ breakfast and lunch sandwiches and Craig’s Bakery subs, sandwiches and baked goods,” says Jordie. “Craig’s delivers fresh Monday, Wednesday and Friday and all the stuff is brand name. You’re not gonna get it for $5 but it’s not gonna taste like cardboard.” The Wiens have adjusted liquor prices to meet competitors and, as well as frozen pizzas,

Jordie and Karen Wiens purchased the Balmoral Store and spent three weeks renovating the store and adding new products. Big changes will be coming to the outside as well. the store is well-stocked with bacon, eggs, milk, cream, butter and all the usual condiments. Other new additions include Shuswap Coffee Company products. Ice delivery and garbage pick-up are now being handled by local service providers. “Any suppliers that were not local, we offered anyone else who was competitive if they wanted to get onboard,” Jordie says. One thing the store will no longer supply is drug paraphernalia, despite the fact that what the previous owner was selling was not illegal. The store was built in 1925 and the Wiens

School board input sought SD#83 looking into how many trustees it should have. Richard Rolke Black Press

There is a week left for residents to have their say on how local schools are governed. North Okanagan-Shuswap School District wants to know how many trustees it should have. Official trustee Mike McKay is currently seeking public input on the future size of the school board prior to him finalizing a recommendation to the Ministry of Education before the end of December. Options that have been discussed include: • maintaining the status quo of nine trustees from the seven wards across the school district; • reducing the size of the board to seven trustees, with various

Now’s the time to test your home for radon gas LiviNg Well

Radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking. It may contribute to as much as 16 per cent of all lung cancers. Radon, when combined with tobacco smoke, including second-hand smoke,

can increase the risk substantially. Health Canada estimates that one in three smokers exposed to high radon levels will develop lung cancer. Radon is a naturally occurring gas found in the ground throughout the world. Most homes that are in contact with the ground will contain some amount of radon gas. Radon becomes

more of a concern when it reaches high levels. According to Health Canada about seven per cent of the Canadian homes have radon levels that may be putting residents at risk. Here in the B.C. Interior we have some “hot spot” areas with high radon levels in approximately 40 per cent of homes. Radon gas is colourless, odourless and

through April. During the cooler months windows and doors are often closed and rising warm air in a home draws more radon from the ground. Testing a home is easy and inexpensive. Testing involves placing a small puck-like kit within the lowest area of the home that could be occupied for at least four hours per day. The kit should

tasteless, so the only way to know if the radon levels in your home are high is to conduct testing. Many houses contain bedrooms, rec rooms or suites in the basement. Being heavier than air, radon can accumulate in basements and then move throughout the building. The best time to test your home for radon gas is now

remain in that location for a minimum of three months and then can be sent to a laboratory. Radon can enter a home through the foundation, including concrete and more so through cracks in a foundation or dirt floor such as in older crawl spaces. It can also enter a home through the ventilation system. The bottom line is

that everyone needs to test their homes for radon to see if this gas (dubbed as the “silent killer”) is lurking. If elevated radon levels are found, basic measures can be taken to address the problem. Kits are available from: BC Lung Association online at http:// www.radonaware.ca or call 1-800-665-LUNG (5864).

ONLINE SAFETY BEGINS AT HOME.

On moose, wolves and bears ShuSwap OutdOOrS Hank Shelley including plentiful moose sign. Wolves had followed the moose. Returning a day later, all the moose had vanished (Scattered ?) downhill. Two days later, in the same hunting areas, with increasing snow and cold, no trace of animals anywhere! Many local hunter’s also report a lack of seeing game. So what is taking place? • Very large and increasing clear-cut logging blocks (In the Upper Adams, 15 new, right to sub-alpine). Increased access and road building. • More hunters, many using ATV/4x4 into moose, deer, habitat. • Very high and increasing number of grizzly and black bears. These animals prey on newborn

Sh op Lo c al

calves and fawns. • Climate change, effecting game/predator interactions. Also moving animals to northern climates, and the huge number of wildfires this past summer. No doubt, countless numbers of small and large animals lost their lives, while many populations moved to lower safe locations. • Aboriginal harvest. This is significant. With a growing population of folks on many reserves, and fishing/hunting a culture, communal hunting of all game species, can take place spring, or fall, including night hunting. • For regular hunting seasons, biologists, like the one in Kamloops, must integrate sound science and game management practices, satisfy hunters on open seasons, figure out recruitment of game animals. Whether there’s an increase or lower numbers of babies born, survival ratios or disease out-

breaks. Each winter biologists gather to gather game population estimates. This using, current winter aerial surveys, census data, hunter question surveys. Putting hunters on a draw system, gives control to the hunters in the field, but at the cost of fewer hunters out there. General seasons have no limit on licenses available, and with a increased numbers of hunters, for a given amount of game, biologists estimate there may be shortened seasons, the number of tags a hunter can hold, or the sex of the animal that can be taken. Overall, each of us hunters, have an opinion on what is happening to our big game animals. Open seasons. Bag limits. Biologists are trying to ensure healthy wildlife populations, while under extreme pressure from all user groups, and a more educated hunter out there to achieve a balance for all.

Residents living along Cambie-Solsqua road, at Sicamous, including Stan Heitman, a top-notch marine mechanic, and avid hunter, enjoy a quiet lifestyle of small holdings and farms. Folks there are used to wildlife, including cougars, bears, and deer in the backyard. However, Stan’s property borders the Eagle River, and he has observed an increasing number of grizzly bears on the property, including the very large and small bruins trying to scavenge spawned out kokanee carcasses through lack of spawning salmon. A young hunter friend had a LE H draw for a bull moose, so last week, up the mountain TFL/ Queest/Owlhead they went. Lots of grizzly sign in the snow,

Firefighters enjoy giving back Sicamous, Salmon Arm need new recruits. Lachlan Labere Eagle Valley News

A late night call, a rush of adrenaline, the knowledge that whatever comes next, you’ll be with a team of welltrained individuals with the best interests of you and the community at heart. Shuswap firefighters Peterson Bailey and Kyle Simcoe have been there. They’ve felt that rush and, though still early in their firefighting careers, share a confidence in their abilities and those of their fellow firefighters. Both are paid on-call firefighters with the Sicamous Fire Department, Bailey since April 2016 and Simcoe since June of this year. Bailey started with the department as a way of fulfilling his Grade 11 volunteer credit requirements. But the job appealed to him, and he decided to stick with it. Getting to this point has been a gradual learning process, supported by a caring team of professionals. “Some people might be intimidated by seeing a big house on fire… they might have the preconceived idea that we get there and we just rush into a burning building and start fighting a fire, like what is portrayed in movies and that sort of stuff,” said Bailey. “But actual-

ly, it’s a very co-ordinated team of people, and there’s your fire chief there who is directing and giving instructions and then we have the officers there.” “For us, the rookies, people who have been there less than a year or who don’t have the qualifications to do the more experienced stuff, we’re delegate to do more minor things. It’s not like we take you and dump you in straight to the meat of it… It’s a very gentle learning where you get gradually introduced into it.” The Sicamous and Salmon Arm fire departments are currently seeking new recruits. While firefighter training is plentiful and ongoing, Simcoe and Bailey assure it’s nothing to be intimidated by. Both strongly recommend anyone even remotely interested in the world of firefighting come to a practice an see what it’s like. “They’re all very understanding when you don’t know something. You can’t be afraid to come in. But once you’re in, good luck getting out,” said Simcoe. Anyone interested in firefighting in Sicamous can contact Ogino at firechief@sicamous.ca, or by phone at 250-8363728. In Salmon Arm, call 250-803-4060.

Dance competition goes live Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

Saturday evening’s Dancing with the Shuswap Stars dress rehearsal in Vernon was an exciting time for the dancers lined up to perform the real thing in two weeks. Dresses adorned with sequins abounded, along with lederhosen, which was the ideal outfit for the Beer Barrel Polka, performed by David Askew with his partner Simone Goerner. The performances were enjoyed by a packed audience, most of whom attended from Salmon Arm. They might have missed getting tickets for the Nov. 17 event, but at least they were able to enjoy seeing first-class performances at the dress rehearsal. And, they won’t have to miss out on voting for their favourite! This year’s event will be live streamed that evening. Roxy Roth and her team at Shuswap Event will be videoing all the action at the SASCU Recreation Centre so that anyone can watch and hear the evening’s events on their smart phone, computer or, even better, on their wide-screen TV – wired to their computer. So those who wanted to buy a ticket will be able to enjoy the evening’s entertainment in the comfort of their own home or from wherever they

might be, through the live coverage. And finally, viewers can help decide the winners of this year’s competition by buying stars online through Paypal by using their credit card. Organizers hope this will appeal to people who want to take in Dancing with the Shuswap Stars, have a say in the outcome and support the expansion of the Larch Hills Chalet. Live streaming will start at 7 p.m. and run until after the winners are announced at 11 p.m. Online voting will end at 10:30 p.m. so these votes can be tallied in with the votes of the recreation centre audience and the judges.

VERNON PRESENTS

Cinemaphile Set deep in the heart of the French countryside, Irreplaceable shows how everyone in a small village counts on the doctor, JeanPierre Werner (Francois Cluzet), who heals and reassures them day and night, seven days a week. A country doctor who has lived his life devoted to his job, Werner finds out he is suffering from an inoperable brain tumor. His doctor advises him to retire and rest. Soon thereafter, Nathalie Deleziaa (Marianne Denicourt), a doctor from the big city, arrives to help him with his practice, but the arrangement unsettles Werner, who considers himself in-

Kings place second in tourney Jim Elliot Salmon Arm Observer

After the round-robin portion of their home tournament, the NorthZone kings were in third place with a 2-1 record. The Kings faced the Calgary Royals in the opening game of the semi-finals. Caden Bracken opened the scoring at 12:06 after a hard forecheck freed the puck to Kohen Martin. Martin fed Bracken who slid the puck out to d-man Aiden Rysen. Rysen pounded the puck on net through traffic and Bracken pounced on the rebound stuffing one under the Calgary tender’s outstretched right pad. The game remained at 1-0 until Joe Eggert fired a puck from the corner to the front of the net off Dawson Chase and in. Calgary got on the board where the onrushing forward made a move in tight around the defence chipping one high in tight over North Zone tender Caleb Mitchell. The Kings got that one back with just over a minute left as Nic Teale ripped a wrister off the rush. The Kings took a 3-1 lead into the

second after an exciting first with chances at both ends. The Royals came out hard in the second forcing Mitchell into an early pad save off a two-on-one. The score remained 3-1 after two. The Kings pushed hard early in the third. Lee Christiensen fired the puck on net where Martin deflected it in over the pad to put the Kings up three. The Royals’ frustration led to a NZ power play mid frame with Martin getting his second goal in the period off Bracken’s face-off win slamming a quick wrist shot between the legs for the 5-1 lead. The North Zone boys cruised the rest of the way to the victory. The Kings faced the Central Zone Rockets in the final on Sunday afternoon getting off to a good start trading early chances. North Zone gained a four-minute man advantage and took the lead 1-0 at 11:53 as Noren picked the blocker side top corner from the high slot off a feed from Dylan Huber. An unfortunate own goal nullified the lead as a NZ d-man fired a puck into his own net.

Dawson Chase of the North Zone Kings battles Cade McNeil-Roberts of the Calgary Royals in Midget Tier One hockey Saturday at the Civic Arena in Vernon. The team includes players form Salmon Arm and Sicamous. Another gaffe cost the Kings at the 7:43 mark after a giveaway behind the NZ net created a quick wraparound to give CZ a 2-1 lead. The energized CZ squad took advantage potting their third on a bang-bang play down low where poor d-zone coverage cost the North Zone boys. The Rockets continued the onslaught, blasting a shot under Mitchell’s blocker side with 3:54 left in the first to take a 4-1 lead. Coach Jared Barendregt changed tenders trying to spark his squad. An early power play for the Kings resulted in a giveaway at their blue line and a 2nd shorthanded marker for the Rockets. A clearly rattled NZK

squad fumbled through the second until Cam Moger’s slapper off a scramble appeared to give them a lift. Off the ensuing face off, an ill-advised penalty took Moger off for two but the Rockets regained their four-goal lead 27 seconds later on the power play with a screened slapper from the point. CZ cleaned up gaining a 7-2 lead with just nine seconds left off the draw over the glove of Sedlacek. In the third, the Kings’ frustration boiled over giving up a 5/3 advantage and an 8-2 lead at 13:04. Teale got a late goal off a scramble down low to make the final 8-3 as the central zone squad won the event.

Butter is Better FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC Dr. Warren Gage For years butter has been vilified as a dangerous saturated fat that causes heart disease. All the way back to the 1920’s supposedly healthier alternatives to butter started to be promoted. Margarine was one of the main products that was and still is marketed to be a healthier alternative to real butter; however, research is now showing

that it is not actually healthier at all. Butter has ben consumed by our ancestors for thousands of years; however, over the time period of the 1920’s to the 1960’s when margarine was heavily promoted, heart disease steadily increased to become the number one killer. There are several reasons it is healthier

to consume butter versus processed margarine. The main reason is that margarine is a highly processed and chemically altered substance that is high in trans-fats. Trans fats are now known to cause all kinds of health problems, while saturated fat is actually healthy and essential, in moderation. This is also why the “fat-free” diet fad has gone by the wayside. On the other side of the argument, butter is known over the longterm to slightly raise cholesterol. Howev-

er, when you research Cholesterol and heart disease, a lot of research is now showing the inaccuracy of the current belief that cholesterol is the sole villain in heart disease. In fact, cholesterol is an essential building block for the nerves and brain. It is required in the skin to help produce vitamin D and sex hormones use cholesterol as a building block. So, the trick to staying healthy is once again, avoid processed foods, consume natural organic grass-fed butter (in moderation),

exercise regularly to flush the body and blood stream of excess fats, and reduce stress, smoking and alcohol. Consuming a diet high in fiber and whole foods will also help flush your body of excess inflammation and plaques. This in turns helps to maintain the right balance of good and bad fats in the body.

The Eyes – Window into the Diabetic Soul Diabetes can cause changes and damage to almost every part of the eye! Retinal changes at the back of the eye, earlier and aggressive cataract development, fluctuations in glasses prescription and increased risk for optic nerve damage could all be brewing without any warning. What is diabetes? Diabetes mellitus is a group of diseases that are defined by having high sugar levels in the blood caused from defects of insulin secretion and/or increased cell resistance to insulin. There are different types of diabetes including type 1, type 2, and gestational. Type 1 diabetes has been previously called

insulin-dependent or juvenile diabetes because it is often diagnosed at a young age. Type 2 diabetes (previously called adult onset or non-insulin dependent diabetes) is the most common type, making up approximately 90% of all diabetic cases. Gestational diabetes occurs when there is a degree of glucose intolerance during pregnancy. How can diabetes damage the eyes? Diabetic damage in the eye is most commonly found at the back of the eye at the retina. The retina is the delicate inner surface of the back of the eye that captures light, similar to film used in older non-digital cam-

eras. Diabetic retinal disease, also called diabetic retinopathy (DR), is the leading cause of new cases of preventative vision loss among working aged adults in North America. The longer someone is diabetic, the higher the chance of developing DR. Studies reveal that after 20 years of being diagnosed, more than 60% of type 2 diabetics and almost all type 1 diabetics have some form of DR. DR includes swelling or edema at the macula (center of the retina), blood leaking out of blood vessels onto the retina creating hemorrhages, blood vessel changes and new blood vessel

growth. These complications increase the patient’s risk of visual impairment and vision loss. The best way to prevent changes and damage from occurring is tight blood sugar control. Diabetic patients can also develop cataracts at a younger age and those cataracts progress more rapidly than in non-diabetic patients. Large blood sugar fluctuations and high sugars can wreak havoc on a glasses prescription as well. Significant prescription changes can be seen very quickly and only stabilize when blood sugars are back within a normal range. A Health Canada study found that as

many as 30% of people with diabetes do not know they have it! The Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends annual eye exam for all diabetics independent of how long they have been diabetic or what type of medication(s) they are taking. The BC Medical Services Plan partially covers annual eye exams for all diabetics in the province. So don’t put off getting those peepers checked – lets keep the windows to our soul happy and healthy!

Tied up at 4-4 with less than four minutes to play in the third period, Chase Heat’s Colton Nikiforuk reaches for the puck looking for the go-ahead goal with Revelstoke Grizzlies’ goalie Liam McGarva down on the ice. ruk evened things at 1-1, assisted by Kaden Black and Zachary Fournier. But the mad bears struck again; after the first it was 2-1. In the second period the Heat struck twice on the power play, Cory Loring from Pat Brady and Josh Bourne, and then Nikiforuk from Fournier and Grady Musgrave. In the third the Grizzlies tied it up before Bourne, assisted by Ryan Okino and Loring, regained the lead. However the Mountain Mecca boys came right back to make a contest of it late in the game.

PLAYER OF THE WEEK

The trials and tribulations of operating, managing and coaching a junior hockey team are many. There is the bottom line to worry about, there are line combinations to fret over and there are fantasies of lineups of fans anxiously awaiting entry into the Art Holding Memorial Arena. All are doable if you provide an entertaining product, win or lose, for those able to spring some after-tax dollars. So, prior to the weekend update, we provide a morsel of great news regarding the on-ice component. Of the 20 teams in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League, the Chase Heat have the #1 power play in the entire league. Not too shabby considering the team is currently playing 500 hockey – win one, lose one and on and on. A bright light of good news for locals, especially when the news cycle normally contains either bad or sad items for us to mull over. Friday night the third, Chase played host to the #1 team in their division, the Revelstoke Grizzlies. The Stoke popped in the scoring opener before Colton Nikifo-

Open house on TCH upgrades The Village of Chase would like citizens to have their say regarding design of Trans-Canada Highway upgrades. The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure is hosting an open house on Wednesday, Nov. 22 from 3 to 7 p.m. at the village’s community hall. MOTI will show the most recent designs for the Trans-Canada Highway upgrades along the corridor from the Chase-Falkland Road intersection at TCH to Jade Mountain at Mattey’s property. The village states it would like to hear from

everyone who will be affected by the upgrades to the Trans Canada Highway along the Chase/Falkland Road – Mattey Hill corridor. States a notice from the village: “At present we have three full access and egress points between Petro-Canada and Mattey’s Hill. The proposals from the Ministry of Highways will reduce our access points significantly! This has serious impacts to our community! We need your voice!” The notice asks residents to think about accessing the highway,

accessing the community and traffic impacts inside Chase. “What about inside Chase once changes have been made to the way we access the highway and access our community? Can you think of potential bottlenecks and congestion that might occur because of the proposed changes to how we access our community or travel to the highway?” It asks residents to think of future issues, one of them attracting tourists. “The opportunities for Chase as a tourism destination may

become lessened if it is difficult for tourists to easily access our community – if there are less opportunities to come to Chase, we will lose tourism. The likelihood of highway travellers turning into Chase or even having time to consider visiting will be reduced if there are fewer access points and the motorists are travelling effectively 25 km/hour faster than they currently travel along the corridor.” For more information, contact the village office at 250-6793238 and ask for Sean or Joni.

Fieldwork begins on Bruhn Bridge

Friday, November 10, 2017 Page B5

Congratulations

Lachlan Labere Eagle Valley News

Archaeological investigations and other work will begin this month in relation to the replacement of the Bruhn Bridge. The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MOTI) announced Thursday morning, Nov. 2, that fieldwork will begin this month to provide additional technical information in order to help evaluate options for improving safety and replacing the bridge on Highway 1 in Sicamous. “Starting later this month, residents and travellers may see activity along the highway right-of-way, in the Sicamous Narrows, and east and west of the RW Bruhn Bridge approaches,” states the ministry in a news release. “There will be archaeological investigations within the proposed project limits and in key areas identified for geotechnical

The province begins fieldwork this month related to the replacement of the aging RW Bruhn Bridge along Highway 1 in Sicamous. investigation. “Geotechnical drilling east and west of the RW Bruhn Bridge approaches and underwater within the Sicamous Narrows will be carried out to better understand subsurface conditions.” The planned work is not expected to impact traffic along the highway. Opened as the Sicamous Narrows Bridge in 1962, and renamed the R.W. Bruhn Bridge

collectif9

in 1963, MOTI is currently looking at two options to replace the aging infrastructure. One proposes a five lane bridge, the other a four lane bridge with an additional bridge over the channel at the end of Main Street. The Main Street bridge option has sparked some resistance in the community, while a public survey conducted by the ministry shows respondents favouring the five-lane option.

Enderby urges ride-sharing Richard Rolke Black Press

Enderby continues to insist that any move towards ride-sharing shouldn’t be just urban. Council is writing to the provincial government as part of the stakeholder consultation on modernizing passenger directed vehicle services such as Uber. “We want them to consider small, rural areas,” said Mayor Greg McCune. “There is no one from small communities on the panel.” McCune believes a ride-share service in Enderby could not only benefit people needing to get home after socializing, but it could make it easy for seniors without vehicles to get groceries

or visit the doctor. “There’s definitely an opportunity out there,” he said. At the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention in 2017,

Tate Bengtson EndErby CAO

council had a motion endorsed that called for ride-sharing to be considered in small and rural communities. “More recently, council endorsed sensding a letter to MLA Greg

Kyllo, and copied to the Green Party leader, encouraging co-operation around this shared policy goal,” said Tate Bengtson, chief administrative officer, in a report to council. “The letter emphasized ensuring that ride-sharing regulations must be sufficiently flexible to foster the growth of this innovative transportation solution in small markets. The central concern is regulations will be designed on a one size fits all basis with the intent of ensuring fairness in markets where there are existing, robust, public transportation systems and that, by doing so, it will pose an insurmountable barrier to the establishment of ride-sharing services in smaller markets.”

INFORMATION DESIGNED TO PROMOTE AND ENHANCE YOUR WELLBEING

Butter is Better FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC Dr. Warren Gage For years butter has been vilified as a dangerous saturated fat that causes heart disease. All the way back to the 1920’s supposedly healthier alternatives to butter started to be promoted. Margarine was one of the main products that was and still is marketed to be a healthier alternative to real butter; however, research is now showing

that it is not actually healthier at all. Butter has ben consumed by our ancestors for thousands of years; however, over the time period of the 1920’s to the 1960’s when margarine was heavily promoted, heart disease steadily increased to become the number one killer. There are several reasons it is healthier

to consume butter versus processed margarine. The main reason is that margarine is a highly processed and chemically altered substance that is high in trans-fats. Trans fats are now known to cause all kinds of health problems, while saturated fat is actually healthy and essential, in moderation. This is also why the “fat-free” diet fad has gone by the wayside. On the other side of the argument, butter is known over the longterm to slightly raise cholesterol. Howev-

er, when you research Cholesterol and heart disease, a lot of research is now showing the inaccuracy of the current belief that cholesterol is the sole villain in heart disease. In fact, cholesterol is an essential building block for the nerves and brain. It is required in the skin to help produce vitamin D and sex hormones use cholesterol as a building block. So, the trick to staying healthy is once again, avoid processed foods, consume natural organic grass-fed butter (in moderation),

exercise regularly to flush the body and blood stream of excess fats, and reduce stress, smoking and alcohol. Consuming a diet high in fiber and whole foods will also help flush your body of excess inflammation and plaques. This in turns helps to maintain the right balance of good and bad fats in the body. Dr. Warren Gage is a family wellness Chiropractor who can be reached at Harbourfront Family Chiropractic at (250) 803-0224.

The Eyes – Window into the Diabetic Soul Diabetes can cause changes and damage to almost every part of the eye! Retinal changes at the back of the eye, earlier and aggressive cataract development, fluctuations in glasses prescription and increased risk for optic nerve damage could all be brewing without any warning. What is diabetes? Diabetes mellitus is a group of diseases that are defined by having high sugar levels in the blood caused from defects of insulin secretion and/or increased cell resistance to insulin. There are different types of diabetes including type 1, type 2, and gestational. Type 1 diabetes has been previously called

insulin-dependent or juvenile diabetes because it is often diagnosed at a young age. Type 2 diabetes (previously called adult onset or non-insulin dependent diabetes) is the most common type, making up approximately 90% of all diabetic cases. Gestational diabetes occurs when there is a degree of glucose intolerance during pregnancy. How can diabetes damage the eyes? Diabetic damage in the eye is most commonly found at the back of the eye at the retina. The retina is the delicate inner surface of the back of the eye that captures light, similar to film used in older non-digital cam-

eras. Diabetic retinal disease, also called diabetic retinopathy (DR), is the leading cause of new cases of preventative vision loss among working aged adults in North America. The longer someone is diabetic, the higher the chance of developing DR. Studies reveal that after 20 years of being diagnosed, more than 60% of type 2 diabetics and almost all type 1 diabetics have some form of DR. DR includes swelling or edema at the macula (center of the retina), blood leaking out of blood vessels onto the retina creating hemorrhages, blood vessel changes and new blood vessel

growth. These complications increase the patient’s risk of visual impairment and vision loss. The best way to prevent changes and damage from occurring is tight blood sugar control. Diabetic patients can also develop cataracts at a younger age and those cataracts progress more rapidly than in non-diabetic patients. Large blood sugar fluctuations and high sugars can wreak havoc on a glasses prescription as well. Significant prescription changes can be seen very quickly and only stabilize when blood sugars are back within a normal range. A Health Canada study found that as

many as 30% of people with diabetes do not know they have it! The Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends annual eye exam for all diabetics independent of how long they have been diabetic or what type of medication(s) they are taking. The BC Medical Services Plan partially covers annual eye exams for all diabetics in the province. So don’t put off getting those peepers checked – lets keep the windows to our soul happy and healthy!

CRERAR, NANCY BARBARA (Nee ROE) Nancy Barbara Crerar, nee Roe, of Armstrong, B.C., died peacefully on a beautiful fall day at Shuswap Lake General Hospital, Salmon Arm, B.C. on October 25th, 2017. She was diagnosed with cancer in June 2014, and was 88 years of age. Nancy was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and soon moved with her family to Calgary where she grew up. After high school graduation, she moved back to Winnipeg and then graduated as a Registered Nurse from St. Boniface Hospital in the Class of 1952. During her training, the 1950 Winnipeg Flood occurred and she, along with hospital patients, evacuated to other hospitals in the city. She worked as an RN at Deer Lodge in Winnipeg as well as Pilot Mound in southern Manitoba. Nancy was a life-long member of the Anglican Church and devoted many hours to church and community activities as well as a widow’s support group comforting many friends. Her love of the outdoors started as a young teenage hosteller in the Rocky Mountains. Among her many trips, she climbed Mt. Schaffer near lake O’Hara, and hiked the West Coast Trail twice in the later years of her life. She loved flowers, sketching and water color outdoors, knitting socks for her family and friends, and the company of two little dogs, Daisy and Tyndall. In 1953, she married Clifford Lynes, who had been a fighter pilot during WW II and had returned home to the family business, Lynes Motors, which had operated in Pilot Mound and Crystal City for Many years. After selling the business, which had become a New Holland farm machinery dealer, the family moved to Winnipeg. Nancy and Clifford traveled overseas to the United Kingdom, Europe, the Caribbean and Hawaii on business and holiday trips. Clifford’s sudden death in 1983 left Nancy widowed. In 1987, she married Richard Crerar in Winnipeg. He retired from the RCMP in Ottawa and they lived in Parksville and Lethbridge prior to moving to B.C. in 2013. During their time together, they were able to travel to the United Kingdom, Europe, South America, Turkey, Mexico and the western U.S.A. Pacific Rim National Park and Waterton Lakes National Park became favorite destinations for many years. Nancy was a devoted mother, grandmother and beloved wife. She is survived by her husband Richard; daughters Deborah and Pamela of Winnipeg, Jane of Calgary and sons Daniel and Patrick of Winnipeg, Noelle of Surrey, Tyler of Saskatoon and Alycia of Calgary. She is also survived by five great grandchildren. Nancy is fondly remembered by her stepchildren Laura of Pembroke, Bruce of Calgary and Jan of Salmon Arm and their families. She is predeceased by her four beloved siblings: Mary, Bernard, Richard and Michael. In respecting Nancy’s wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be a celebration of her life in Manitoba in the spring of 2018. The family extends their heartfelt thanks to the Second-Floor nursing team of Shuswap Lake General Hospital and Dr. K. Goldberg. Online condolences may be sent to Nancy’s family through her obituary at www. bowersfuneralservice.com

You will likely find the following things: • Emotional support in a safe and non-judgmental environment. • Support and understanding from others who have experienced a similar loss. • Coping skills to help you on your grief journey. • Hope through companionship with people who “get itâ€? and understand first-hand what you’re going through. • Permission to grieve and permission to live a happy productive life. • Information will be available for how children and other family members may react to loss. The most important thing is to take care of yourself. Drop-in to our weekly Wednesday Mourning CafĂŠ, facilitated by Naomi Silver, at our Mountainside Common Room from 10:00 to 11:30 am.

ARIES

Aries, don’t get caught up in too much gossip, as it can only negatively impact your relationships. Take the higher ground whenever possible and you will stay above the fray.

TAURUS

It is impossible to change the past unless you have a time machine, Taurus. Instead of dwelling on what should’ve been, make new things happen for the better.

GEMINI

Gemini, take a fresh approach to a problem that has been puzzling you. A new perspective might be just the thing you need to crack this nut and move forward.

CANCER

Cancer, just when you thought things would quiet down for the time being, change is coming. This may catch you by surprise — but change can sometimes be good.

LEO

Leo, you don’t have to be the center of attention at all times. Take some time to relax and allow others to be the focal point. Welcome this muchneeded respite with open arms.

VIRGO

Virgo, offer your help when a loved one seems to need it. Make some time for this person in your busy schedule. It will be worth the effort.

Martha Wickett Salmon Arm Observer

It takes a lot of food and funds to provide adequate shelter and resources for all the women and children who fill the Salmon Arm Women’s Emergency Shelter over the course of the year. Once again the Shuswap Area Family Emergency (SAFE) Society is holding its annual Food and Dollar Drive. Donations of food and funds are much needed. “It has been so busy, we’re using a tremendous amount of food,” remarked Marilyn Kalke, resident co-ordinator at the shelter. “It’s going down really fast.” Jane Shirley, executive director of the SAFE Society, notes the shelter does its best to provide nutritional food, following Canada’s food guide. She notes that simple is often best. “Some people are under so much stress…, simple meals are easier to make. We don’t cook for them – it’s a communal cooking kitchen. That’s part of the lifeskills component.” Financial donations are also appreciated. If a mailing address is provided, the society can send a tax receipt. Also, if case lots of cans (not single cans) are donated, the person donating can provide or mail in a receipt from the store where it was purchased and a tax receipt can be issued. Financial donations can be mailed to SAFE Society, PO Box 1463, Salmon Arm, V1E 4P6 or call 250-832-9616 to arrange delivery. Funds can also be donated online at CanadaHelps.org (https:// www.canadahelps.org/ en/). On the ‘Canada Helps’ website, search “Shuswap Area Family Emergency Society.” Questions can also be emailed to safesociety@ shaw.ca. Both Kalke and Shirley emphasize that any food donated must not be past its expiration date. Non perishable food items are needed as well as baking items – flour, all sugar, children’s lunch items, coffee/herbal teas/iced tea/hot chocolate, toilet paper, paper towels, Kleenex, thin Maxi pads and cleaning products. Shirley expresses gratitude for the community’s support.
